14 Celebrity-Inspired Southern Cooking Recipes

Everyone's got their own favorite celebrities. Whether that's an actor, a musician, or royalty, it's perfectly natural for people to admire a celebrity. 

Here at FaveSouthernRecipes.com, our favorite celebrities are some of the people who have influenced Southern cooking the most. We admire our favorite celebrities so much that we compiled a list of 14 Celebrity-Inspired Southern Cooking Recipes devoted entirely to them. Who are those favorite celebrities, you may ask? None other than the famous Paula Deen, Elvis Presley, and the Pioneer Woman.

Not only do these recipes have famous origins, but they’re also incredibly delicious and easy to make. With this list, you’ll have everything you need to create some great Southern comfort food. Whether you’re from the South or not, there’s no way you won’t love these dishes. These easy Southern recipes will have you covered to make an entire Southern meal, from appetizers all the way to dessert. 

Paula Deen-Inspired Recipes

Chicken Cobbler Casserole

In our eyes, Paula Deen might as well be a hero in the South for everything she’s done for Southern cooking. The star of Paula's Home Cooking on the Food Network, Paula Deen creates ultimate Southern comfort food that everyone can enjoy. These easy Southern recipes are all inspired by her.

Elvis-Inspired Recipes

Ode-to-Elvis Poke Cake

It’s no secret that Elvis Presley had weird tastes in food. His favorite sandwich was a peanut butter, banana, and bacon sandwich, now aptly referred to as “the Elvis”. If you’re thinking, “Yuck!”, we’ve got one thing to say to you: don’t knock it until you try it! If you’re not interested in having those flavors together in a sandwich, at least try some of these Elvis-inspired dessert recipes.

Pioneer Woman-Inspired Recipes

The Pioneer Woman is also one of our favorite celebrities. Another Food Network star, the Pioneer Woman, also known as Ree Drummond, is a fantastic cook who has greatly influenced Southern cooking. She cooks honest-to-goodness Southern home-style cooking, and we can’t help but love her for it.
